    And I think Houston would do it -- notwithstanding their record, they're loaded with talent and someone like Eli could make them a playoff team.

    So how crazy is this idea?
    Your word "likely" means what? That Clowney MIGHT be all those things you named and more. There is so many equations that enter in for this to be true. What if Clowney is injured seriously then we would be without Eli?

    I've enjoyed your thread, but Eli is going no where. Now how do we get Clowney and keep Eli?

    I like for the Giants to win SB. So no, I wouldn't trade Eli for a DE.
    Eli Manning is better than your quarterback.

    This is absolutely a possibility.

    I actually think it would be easy to find another QB to throw 27 interceptions.
    OK, One Eye!

    Is Brewer supposed to act as some sort of deal sweetener, or are you just trying to unload him? Lol.

    Here's the bottom line.. Forget Clowney, forget Schaub. You DON'T trade the first overall pick in the draft for an aging QB coming off two poor seasons, making a huge salary. Never, ever, ever. The Texans would NEVER give us the 1st pick for Eli. It's a laughable proposition.

    That being said, the Giants probably wouldn't do it unless they absolutely loved a QB in the upcoming draft..

    Here's the bottom line.. Forget Clowney, forget Schaub. You DON'T trade an established SB winning franchise QB for the first overall pick in the draft when that draft position would not solve many of the immediate concerns of your team particularly when your team has so many holes to fill. Never, ever, ever. The Giants would NEVER give away their franchise QB in hopes that the 1st pick works out for them. I doesn't make any sense; It's a laughable proposition.

    I think Clowney is going to be a SUPERSTAR but NO!

    Like I said, they would do it in a heartbeat if they thought the next Andrew Luck was sitting in the draft. It a no brainer, do you choose to keep your current franchise QB (who just threw 27 picks) who has about 4-5 years left max, or do you choose to trade him. So you can pick the next franchise QB that will be here for 15 years. Again, if you loved a QB in the draft. It's a no brainer, but the Browns would go down as the dumbest franchise in league history if they made a deal like that.

    Remember the Colts chose to let a franchise legend and arguably the best QB ever to play the game walk, so,they could better themselves for the long term. And now it looks like they are set for a long time.
